Units Scale


  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, slightly softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp plant-based milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine vegan butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Using a handheld electric mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add plant-based milk and vanilla extract. Cream together once more.
  3. Add flour, cinnamon, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt to the bowl. Stir together until ingredients are evenly combined. Scoop and roll the dough into 13-15 balls.
  4. Create the cinnamon sugar coating by combining granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Roll each ball of cookie dough in the cinnamon sugar.
  5. Transfer cookie dough balls to the baking sheet. Bake for 11-12 minutes or just until the edges start to firm up. Remove the cookies from the oven while they still appear underbaked. They will de-puff and firm up while cooling. Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before enjoying.


  • Keep snickerdoodle cookies stored in a sealed container. They will keep fresh for 3 days.
